he Canadian Association of Nephrology Nurses and Technologists (CANNT) Journal invites letters to the editor and original manuscripts for publication in its quarterly journal. We are pleased to accept submissions in either official language – English or French.
Which topics are appropriate for letters to the editor?
We welcome letters to the editor concerning recently published manuscripts, association activities, or other matters you think may be of interest to the CANNT membership.
What types of manuscripts are suitable for publication?
We prefer manuscripts that present new clinical information or address issues of special interest to nephrology nurses and technologists. In particular, we are looking for:
· Original research papers
· Relevant clinical articles
· Innovative quality improvement reports
· Narratives that describe the nursing experience
· Interdisciplinary practice questions and answers
· Reviews of current articles, books and videotapes
· Continuing education articles.
How should the manuscript be prepared?
Form: The manuscript should be typed double-spaced, one-inch margins should be used throughout, and the pages should be numbered consecutively in the upper right-hand corner. More formal research or clinical articles should be between five and 15 pages. Less formal narratives, question and answer columns, or reviews should be fewer than five pages.
Style: The style of the manuscript should be based on the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA), Sixth Edition (2009), available from most college bookstores.
Title page: The title page should contain the manuscript title, each author’s name (including full first name), professional qualifications [e.g. RN, BScN, CNeph(C)], position, place of employment, address, telephone, fax numbers and e-mail address. The preferred address for correspondence should be indicated.
Abstract: On a separate page, formal research or clinical articles should have an abstract of 100 to 150 words. The abstract should summarize the main points in the manuscript.
Text: Abbreviations should be spelled out the first time they are used with the abbreviation following in brackets, for example, the Canadian Association of Nephrology Nurses and Technologists (CANNT). Generic drug names should be used. Measurements are to be in Standards International (SI) units. References should be cited in the text using APA format. A reference list containing the full citation of all references used in the manuscript must follow the text.
Tables/Figures: Manuscripts should only include those tables or figures that serve to clarify details. Authors using previously published tables and figures must include written permission from the original publisher. Such permission must be attached to the submitted manuscript.
How should the manuscript be submitted?
E-mail your manuscript to Jovina Bachynski at CANNT.firstname.lastname@example.org
Include a covering letter with contact information for the primary author and a one-sentence biographical sketch (credentials, current job title and location) for each author.
How are manuscripts selected for the CANNT Journal?
Each manuscript will be acknowledged following receipt. Research and clinical articles are sent out to two members of the CANNT Journal manuscript review panel to be reviewed in a double-blind review process. All manuscripts may be returned for revision and resubmission. Those manuscripts accepted for publication are subject to copy editing; however, the author will have an opportunity to approve editorial changes to the manuscript. The criteria for acceptance for all articles include originality of ideas, timeliness of the topic, quality of the material, and appeal to the readership. Authors should note that manuscripts will be considered for publication on the condition that they are submitted solely to the CANNT Journal. Upon acceptance of submitted material, the author(s) transfer copyright ownership to CANNT. Material may not be reproduced without written permission of CANNT. Statements and opinions contained within the work remain the responsibility of the author(s). The editor reserves the right to accept or reject manuscripts.
